Terroir: Faugères is a small appellation located on the somewhat inland on the Mediterranean coast to the west of Montpelier and Nimes.
Vinification: This blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan is vinified in a combination of 10% tank, 30% large nuetral oak casks and 60% oak barrels. 30% of the oak is new.
The beautiful ripeness of Syrah is very well balanced due to magnificient tannins of the finest Mourvèdre, allied with a minerality, most characteristic of the Faugères terroirs. The wine is concentrated, voluptuous and elegant with beautiful freshness and great finesse. Its very strong mineral character shares Cade wood and blackberry-pie scent added to floral aroma violet.
